The sequential construction of the tanks meant diagnosing the causes of the leaks were not possible unless each banks of tanks were decommissioned and drained. It was important this down time was minimised to allow each bank of tanks to be re-commissioned within the minimum allowable time frame. Cracks within the concrete tanks were chased out with a disc cutter and repaired with Thoro® Waterplug rapid setting mortar. The concrete walls and floors of each tank were prepared using a rotary sander and then coated with two coats of Thoroseal® FX 100, a DWI approved flexible cementitious waterproofing slurry.
